If you experience physical agony in a dream, take note of the part of your body that is experiencing pain, for that can provide a clue about the meaning of your dream.

For example, in dreams the stomach is the center of the emotions, so if your stomach is in agony in your dream, you could be experiencing emotional distress.

An agonizing headache in a dream can be a sign that you have too much on your mind in waking life, or that you are worried that you don't have the wisdom to make a different decision.

Sometimes, being in agony in a dream is a sign of a physical problem in waking life. Your unconscious is trying to make you aware of the problem before it becomes more serious.

If someone else causes you physical or emotional agony in a dream, you may feel that you are in a difficult situation that is out of your control.

A dream that you cause someone else to feel agony can mean that you are repressing anger in waking life.
